Great Lakes gift creates Edgewood scholarship fund

A $500,000 gift from Great Lakes Higher Education Corp. to Edgewood College has created an endowed fund that will support the full tuition of one Community Scholar every four years. Named for Edgewood’s recently retired president, Dan Carey, the Daniel Carey Community Scholars Fund is targeted to academically motivated Dane County residents who demonstrate financial need and might not pursue a degree without assistance. Great Lakes was one of the founders of Edgewood’s Community Scholars Fund, which supports three students each year.
